2018 College Basketball Tournament: Final Four March 27, 2018 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the last four teams will collide at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas for the last two spots in the Men's Division I National Championship game on April 2. After two weeks of basketball tournament competition, 11th Loyola-Chicago, 3rd Michigan and number 1s Villanova and Kansas have qualified for the Final Four.

The first game of the Final Four which starts at 6:10PM ET will feature 11th Loyola-Chicago against 3rd Michigan. Loyola-Chicago has been the Cinderella story in this year's tournament. They defeated high-ranked teams Miami, Tennessee, Nevada and Kansas State to notch the school's first Final Four appearance in history.

Michigan qualified for its 8th Final Four appearance by winning over Montana, Houston, Texas A&M and Florida State. They have a 6-1 record in the Final Four but has only won 1 National Championship title.

The second game will follow at 8:50PM ET between two number 1 teams, Kansas and Villanova. Kansas qualified in the Final Four for the 16th time by defeating Penn, Seton Hall, Clemson and Duke. They have won 3 National Championship titles and are gunning for its 4th and 2nd titles under Coach Bill Self.

Villanova advanced into its 7th Final Four appearance by winning over Radford, Alabama, West Virginia and Texas Tech. They are gunning for its 3rd National Championship title after winning them in 1985 and 2016.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Michigan and Villanova as the favorites to win their respective Final Four matches on Saturday.
